Reorganising the world's information


21e8 is a post-2020 information architecture company pioneering computational data markets - a data-centric approach to network peering and content distribution that can be optimised for high complexity computing environments by exchanging information and compute power for energy.


We’ve designed the first universal framework and methodology for connecting a global semantic context for any data item with the computational cost to produce it - a design pattern that encodes symbolic information and compute cost into unique IDs, removing the need for cloud platform based measurement and analytics approaches for intelligent control systems. Instead, systems architects can rely on a game theoretic approach to network design, aggregating information from competing data service providers. This ensures that dynamic, resilient systems can be created today to withstand the extreme environments of network fragmentation in 2030.
